My dad told me that it will be bad for me to drink coke before I go to bed. It might cause me have a sleepless night from time to time, because coke contained some caffeine ingredient to it. Sometimes, I experienced some sleepless night too, but I wasn't sure whether it was the cause coke or not. What is your opinion?

That may be true for some people, but it is NOT true for me!!! On nights that I can't sleep, I get up & drink a nice cold glass of Coca~Cola & very soon I drop back off to sleep. Doctors say to NEVER drink Coke after 12:00 noon or you won't sleep that night. The first thing I drink in the morning is a glass of Cole & the last thing I drink at night is a glass of Coke. So Coke does NOT affect my sleeping !!!

If caffeine affects you I would not drink in the evening hours. Many people I know do not drink in the evening or night time due to the fact it will keep them awake at night. It doesn't bother me but if I have more than one in the evening I do not sleep as well. I heard warm milk helps you to sleep well ???

Anything with caffeine in it will make getting to sleep difficult. I've been guilty of indulging in caffeinated drinks before I went to bed even though I really wanted to get to sleep. Needless to say, it was always a bad idea. So if you really want a good night's sleep then avoid any caffeinated drinks before going to bed.

I think some people who drink coke before they go to sleep cant sleep well but in my case since I am already used to drinking coke even coffee before I go to sleep it has no effect on me. I can still sleep well and have no problems what so ever in sleeping. I dont know if it's weird but after drinking coke I can easily fall asleep.

Yes, Coke has some coffeine in it so it can cause sleeplessness. So if you want to sleep, I don't advice you to drink Coke just before going to bed
